I am still alive

It's true. And LiveJournal got really weird, it seems.

Yon AV setup

Poor Livejournal... looking back, I only seem to post when I'm getting all emo about something (though I'll go easy on myself given that I think I've had a couple of reasons to be emo). I didn't actually mention last year when I was in Seattle and I won a 50" plasma TV. Of course, that was some moons ago, and I only actually got the thing a month or so ago... but it's pretty sweet.


And now my surround sound setup is even haphazardly arranged around it. It's nice, for a makeshift setup.

Rodentia

Ibuki brought in a huge rat today. Huge. Of course, I'm just assuming it was her. There wasn't any blood or wounds resembling cat-teeth, nor did I take a sample of the fur for DNA testing against her saliva... but it would seem uncharacteristic for a rat to wander in and keel over in the middle of the hallway.

Blues

Hmmm, playing a little blues when I'm feeling down does actually seem to help a little.
Oh, I have a guitar now. I should probably sell my saxophone, but I'm starting to think "what if I played those same notes on that?" - blah, such a pain to put it together, then dismantle and clean it when I'm done...

New Years Resolution

It took a couple of weeks to decide on a decent one, but my resolution is to be nicer/friendlier to people.
God I hope no one really tests it...

Christmas

Share

Christmas went about as well as can be expected... which is to say it was the worst. Me and Dad went up to Orewa because his mother (by proxy, my Grandmother I suppose, I don't like to make that association though, since she's evil). Had been sick and needed some stooges to clean up after her.
Dad pointed out on the way home that last year we had gone up to Orewa on Christmas as well, and Mum had stayed home... so it's practically the same, right? I reserved my right to disagree.

Also, my Xbox 360 gave me the dreaded Red Ring Of Death, adding to the feeling that everything around me is breaking down. Of course, I'm not just talking about mechanical things, but the things that are and have broken down lately include my Xbox, my computer, and teh internets (actually, they're okay now, sorry for the inconvenience).

On Christmas Eve I wandered down to a bookstore - previously I'd known it as the bargain bin offshoot of a store not far away ($2.50 for Star by Pamela Anderson and totally not worth it), but it certainly seemed like it was in full retail mode, probably something to do with the festive season. I bought a comic book called Vampire Loves. An art style that seems weirdly familiar, and a level of angst in the dialogue that I relate to probably a little too well, I like it.

Friends Are Good

Just got back from watching He Man and The Masters Of the Universe in a lecture theater with Paul, Gary, Angela and Scott... hilarious. It's an old live action movie based rather loosely on the cartoon, certainly seems like a healthy amount of creative license was in play. At some point Skeletor became all gold and stuff with some headgear, and I yelled out "He looks like Galactus!". Paul even made us sit through the credits, after which Skeletors head pops out of the liquid and says "I'll be back!" and then it freeze frames on him. It's truly a classic of the hall of shame. Way to go Courtney Cox.

For the sake of grieving

Share
me

I feel like I should write about the moment I heard. I don't really have anyone to talk to about it. Well, that's not entirely true, there are people who have offered, but I'm not good at doing that, and I'm not certain it helps.

Grief

Dad suggested writing a letter to her to put in the coffin when she goes. Maybe. Not yet though. I can barely keep myself together long enough to write this.
